I don't have a tape deck, I have my iPod in a dock in the car. It has a range of music from Del Shannon, Patsy Cline, Frankie Valley & the Four Seasons, thru to Charlie Pride, Brooks & Dunn, Garth, Toby, Alan & Kenny (four of my favorite men!) thru to Eagles of Death Metal and Nickleback, then finally stuff like Amorphis, Nightwish and After Forever. I have it on random play, so you never know what's next!
Oh Becky, I have a good story about Charlie Pride. I slapped him once w/ his wifes permission.
When I was in college I did cater waiter jobs. At fancy smancy parties I would serve champagne , etc. I was at a high profile wedding at the Dallas Museum of Art & he was there. The bride had not arrived yet. He was over at the bride's wedding cake table & you could tell he wanted to dive into the cake before they had cut it or even taken pictures of it. I looked up at his wife across the room to see if she would come over & intervien. She motioned for me to smack his hand, so as he reached over to dip his fingers into the frosting I did :shock: .
i got a cd of sanskrit songs so i have been driving around listening to that in the car for weeks...my SO borrowed the car last night to go pick up the pizza and came back dancing and singing and making fun of me....
i was thinking of this the other day though while making soap and listening to xavier rudd wondering....what does everyone else listen to?
Shaggy Baby!! I LOVE him! Which sometimes I think is pretty weird coming from a 41yr., heavy set, white woman!
Then of course lately it's been a little Sean Paul, Blue Cantrell, JOHN MELLENCAMP (love him too, since I was 12! saw him in concert locally a few months ago--was so close I could see the details of his tatoos!-not that I can remember them, but it was awesome!) Trace Adkins, and some various hip-hop that my daughter keeps me intune with.
But as like John Mellencamp said on a GAC interview (which I just happened to record) and I quote "I am a fan of music. I have over 3,000 songs on my iPod." I don't have that many but it includes every thing from Dancehall Reggae to Country to Oldies to Classic Rock to Hip-Hop. I like anything you can dance to! (ANYTHING BUT METAL!)
And....my daughter is the only 13yr. old (hint hint) that I know of who knows songs like Little Red Riding Hood (original-not bowling for soup's), Long Tall Glasses-Leo Sayer, At the Hop and other oldies she loves!
I LOVE MUSIC OF MOST KINDS! Do you all dance when you soap?? :wink:
Ian, if you ever get the chance, check out Boiled in Lead, They're a very interesting group out of Minnasota... Interesting Celtic/slavic/?? influence It's not often you get to hear a bazuki and a mandolin in today's music. Some of the music is pure celtic, but a lot of it just all over the place which I love. It's just something different and a nice change of pace from popular music.
And thanks for the explaination on your name... I had been wondering how a good Italian boy got the name Ian!
hehe yep thats where it came from!!! Im a bit of the 'continental pleaser' as I like to call it...Irish, English, Scottish, French, Russian and Italian...My mothers side is the Russian/Italian...and I definitely take after that side more than my Fathers. My grandfather was born Vincenzo Romandetto, and our roots come from both the Melfi and Abruzzi regions in Italia
My mother was big into Tull's music (Ive also seen some of their concerts which was AWESOME... especially since im named after Ian!!)
i will definitely check that group out! Im into so many different types of music and I love trying new groups out...always on the search for more!! thanks much!!!
